BW: Linuxcare Tunes NetAid for Peak Performance

Oct 14, 1999, 20:09 (0 Talkback[s])

"Linuxcare, Inc...played an important role in assisting the NetAid Development Team with building, testing, and launching the Linux-based NetAid Web site. NetAid, a project backed by Cisco, the United Nations Development Program, KPMG, and others, utilizes the global reach of the Internet to increase awareness of the worldwide problem of extreme poverty."

"NetAid launched on October 9 with three overlapping concerts in London, New York, and Geneva -- featuring artists such as Sheryl Crow, Jewel, Puff Daddy, Sting, David Bowie, Celene Dion, and Bono of U2 -- with Webcasts of the concerts on www.netaid.org. NetAid's streaming capability was ten times greater than any prior Webcast, with 125,000 simultaneous live streams, accommodating a viewing capacity of more than ten million people over the course of the ten-hour concert."
